Groove to the joyful sound of this critically-acclaimed, Trinidad-born trumpet virtuoso. Charles, a rising star mentored by legendary artists like pianists Monty Alexander and Marcus Roberts, brings us “soul music that is Creole at heart” – a tasty Caribbean-infused gumbo cooked up with a multitude of jazzy flavors from calypso to Haitian Creole chants to blues to bebop to R & B. A Julliard-trained prodigy, Etienne specializes in feel-good fusion that blends the infectious dance rhythms and colorful textures of  reggae, and calypso and jazz. “I want people to get up and dance to it”, says Charles.  A sure-fire season opener!
